Hello. I’m a first year college student taking up BS Accountancy. It was said by other higher year students of accounting in my school that my professor gives high grades to students if she really knows them. If you have high scores on quizzes and assignments, if she doesn’t know you, she will still give you a low grade.
I don’t want to have a low grade in my accounting subject. But I’m not one of the persons who go talk to teachers like they are my close friends. I don’t want to be called teacher’s pet..
But in my case, I don’t have the choice but to make my lady professor notice me, so that i can have a high grade.
What am I supposed to do? anyone? help pls.. Thank you.
If you’re taking a degree, you should be interested in the subject. They teach it so they obviously enjoy talking about it. Talk about the one enormous thing you have in common.
If you don’t know loads (I didn’t in first year) then ask her opinion on various topics. It doesn’t take much to become friendly with someone – especially a professor because loads of students don’t speak to them at all.
